Review of the 2001 Toyota Tundra

  • The 2001 Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup suited more for the general consumer than for commercial use.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Silky V8, Toyota build quality, less-than-full-size maneuverability.

  • Cons

    Lacks wide range of choice offered by domestics, somewhat uncomfortable front seats, meager rear cab room on Access Cab, chintzy interior trimmings.

135,000 miles and loving it

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Tundra 2dr Regular Cab SR5 V8 4WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this truck used, but have loved it the entire time. It is comfortable for a full-size truck, and super reliable. It isn't capable of doing super heavy duty towing, but I haven't come up against anything that I need to pull, but can't - it's just not a diesel.




Excellent truck

Finest built truck

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab SR5 V8 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this truck with 218k from my good friend right before he passed away and he used it not only to commute around 130 miles a day but also on a farm towing full hay wagons through fields and other farm stuff. It now has 237k and in that distance the only problem I had was the starter went.Yes the exhaust manifolds leak but it's been that way since I got it one year ago. the timing belt is probably original along with the oxy sensors but I toasted a 2010 f150 5.4 triton last week with it and it didn't care. I have yet to this day found anything that my stock 01 tundra couldn't do, It still runs and stops great.

What's New for 2001

The TRD Off-Road package is now available on Access Cabs with a V8 engine, while models equipped with a V6 receive an upgraded alternator. A note-pad holder is now optional on SR5 and Limited, while Base regular cab trucks lose their standard cassette player. Two new colors are available, filling three slots left vacant by old colors that have been discontinued.

I own a 2001 Toyota Tundra that has just over 60,000 miles. When I slow to a stop it will from time to time stall. I start the truck and it runs fine. This doesn't happen every time I slow to a stop. ...

I've got 3 kids and, though the Tundra is decent enough for short trips and the like, I'm glad we bought a Suburban for the longer trips. My kids are still young (8, 5, 3) but can really get on our n...
